Beginning with The Blessing Way (1970), Tony Hillerman's innovative mystery series (centered on Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police) has introduced readers to the lands, peoples, customs, and cultural clashes of the Southwest. Accurate and unpatronizing, Hillerman's works consistently evoke nature and place. This visual equivalent is a collaborative effort between the author and his brother, a professional photographer for 40 years. The text mixes popularized history and anthropology with personal observations and anecdotes. A thoughtful selection of excerpts from Hillerman's novels serve as captions to many of the 200 color photos. Barney Hillerman's camerawork exhibits an understated and straightforward honesty by avoiding over-studioization. Recommended for general and Southwest collections.
